Serene Second Story Bedroom Suite

Oakland, CA

Our work included a second story addition for an Owner’s Bedroom Suite and refreshing living spaces at the main level.

New Second Story:

  • The new Suite includes a Bedroom for the Owner with a walk-in closet and an Office. The Bathroom is designed for relaxation with a steam shower and calm, neutral palette
  • There’s also a balcony that offers a perfect spot to begin or end the day
  • It was easiest to rebuild the Garage as part of the second story addition (see photos below)
  • During construction the Owner decided to replace the drive and walkways with pavers

Main Level:

  • Update the Kitchen and Family Room: Fabricate new Kitchen cabinet doors, install a new countertop, design and build new entertainment center cabinetry and add lighting
    • Levitch promised the Owner that while we were building her new media cabinets she could still watch TV every night. It took extra time to unplug and reconnect everything daily but it was all part of our service. We also rescued a neighbor’s family member during construction, which is another story.
  • Transform a Bathroom into a Powder Room and Laundry Room
  • Replace fixtures at the existing Bathroom
  • Borrow space from the Living Room to create a new stair to the upper story

 

“I hired Levitch Associates to add a second story, update my kitchen, add a laundry room and guest bath and update some cabinetry. It was a big project, a little frightening, but I could not be happier with the results. Everyone I worked with at Levitch from design through estimating to construction and finish was friendly, helpful and professional. Maurice and his team are a pleasure to work with and the work they do is impeccable. Every day I am relieved I trusted my house to them and am grateful for the way they transformed my home.”
